LSC Sailing Certification - Sunfish Sailing

Sailors with Level 1 Sailing Certification and Sunfish Sailing Certification are entitled to use Club owned Sunfish in light winds or a "gentle breeze" (up to about 12 mph with no whitecaps). Sailing in higher wind conditions requires additional Certification or supervision of a LSC sailing instructor. For Junior Sailors, adult assistance in rigging the boat is appropriate where additional strength is required as long as the Junior Sailor is giving specific direction to the adult as an indication the Junior Sailor could complete the task except for lacking necessary strength.

Load a Club Sunfish onto a Club Dolly. Pull the sailboat to the launch area using the dolly and position the sailboat so that the bow is pointed into the wind.
Using Club Sunfish sails, rudder and centerboard from the Sail Shed, rig the boat - including use of the "Boom Sling", tying the centerboard to the boat and tying a "sleeve" if necessary to keep the mainsheet close to the boom when tacking and gybing.
Launch the boat using the dolly. Tie the boat to a mark while putting the dolly away and getting the rudder down.
Untie the boat from the mark, properly position it to sail safely away from the launch area, put the centerboard in, climb on board and sail away from the launch area.
Return to the launch area, bring the boat to a safe stop by turning the bow into the wind and tie the boat to a mark.
While tied to a mark, detach the mainsheet from the traveller, remove the rudder and centerboard and put them in the cockpit, load the boat onto a dolly and use the dolly to bring the boat back on land.
De-rig the boat, properly tie the sails to the booms and mast - then put everything away.
